I am curious as to how I can write words on an image that I embed in my page.
Hi Michelle Rockward , and Welcome to the Canvas community!
There is no native functionality for this, so you would need to use a third-party tool. You can find some listed at "The 7 Best Apps to Write on Pictures".
However, I would like to caution you that text in images is not accessible. Not only can't screen-reading tech read the text for blind users, but very often the resulting text-to-background contrast ration can make reading very challenging for sighted users.
While a cute trick, and nice for creating social media memes, I would never recommend this for an online classroom.
In the example image you embedded the words were likely added in whatever program was used to create the image. Professional designers use tools like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator but similar results can also be obtains using simple tools like Google Draw or Photoshop even. A very easy tool I like to use is https://www.canva.com. It's a free tool with some paid options I've never used, and makes it very easy to create things link banners, etc. You will be able to pull in images and add text over them very easily.
Hope that helps,
Thanks so much. I will keep this in mind.
